Monday morning I received a wholesale order from a new account, Just Because, in Sarasota, Florida. Monday afternoon I received a wholesale order from an established account, American Crafts and Jewels, in Carmel, California. Monday evening I checked stock and had everything in stock the gallery/boutiques ordered. Monday evening everything was packed and ready to ship. Tuesday morning the packages were off to there destination. I am still tingling from the fruits of my labor.
It is so difficult to make a living as a studio artist. You are always "on" in regards to generating your own income. Swim or drown in this crazy world of finances.
Today private teaching begins.
I now have three sources of income. Art consultant and facilitator of art therapy projects at a retirement community, private educator in the studio and studio artist. The good thing is that when one job is slow, the other job makes up for the income.
I am very grateful to have work in my field.
